Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with another Christmas card. 
 
I created a toilet paper background with an embossing folder. I took four layers of toilet paper layered one on top of the other and spritzed each layer with water. I then placed it in an embossing folder and ran it through my cuttlebug, then put it to ones side to dry.
Surprisingly the layers stick together and create a beautiful background. I stamped the berry sprig in Versafine Claire and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I water coloured the leaves and berries, then added clear glossy accents over the berries and finally fussy cut around the leaves and berries.
 

Here is a close up of the embossed background and my berry branch lay out on top. I love the pop of colour against the white background and the distressed edge which was outside of the embossing folder. Keeping with the white on white background I didn't layer my sentiment with a frame.

This is lovely, Christine with the script as background. The red berries really pop. I love the impression you get using toilet paper with an embossing folder.

Gorgeous red berries that do pop off that embossed background! Toilet paper works great for embossing!

Glad I saw this card in real life - it's even more beautiful than in the photo. The embossed background is fabulous - I love the way you kept the edge that was outside the embossing folder as it adds great extra interest. A beautiful background for the lovely sprig of berries.

Your berry branch just pops off the all white background. Love the vibrant red of those glossy berries, Christine. And the white toilet paper background looks like hand-made paper. It really embosses deeply. I love the distress edge! Great design!

Gorgeous card. The berry branch is highlighted beautifully against the cool embossed toilet paper background. Will need to give this TP embossing technique a try.
